Career Workshop

Starting or moving into a new IT career is the most anxious period in one's professional career journey. An informative career workshop can help reduce your anxiety and ensure success in the job market.

At busyQA, we run several weekly IT career workshops. These workshops are appropriate for both Tech and non-Tech related careers. Our busyQA Career Workshop is made up of three important components to ensure that all of our students are adequately prepared and ready for the workforce.

Career Knowledge

​Our career workshop consists of three main components to help our students start their high-demand career in IT.

  • Career path clarification 

  • Salary Negotiation 

  • Workplace prep

Resume & Cover Letter

Our expert career counsellors will work side-by-side with you to build the best and most competitive resume and cover letter to help you land your dream IT career.

Interview Prep

Interviews are nerve-wracking for almost all of us. The only way to be truly prepared is to practice, practice, practice. We will provide mock IT career interviews in your chosen position to get you ready for your big day.

Contact us to register for a career workshop in any career or job industry.

Keys to a successful QA Career


  • Knowledge: Knowledge is having the technical expertise required to do the job (40%).

  • Personality: Personality is who you are. Are you a friendly person to work with? Are you agreeable? Do you radiate positive energy? Do people love you easily? (30%)

  • Luck: Are you are the right place at the right time? And if so, do you take an opportunity the firsttime it arises? Luck is about who you know. (30%)

QA Resume and Cover Letter

  • Profile: In 2-3 sentences, describe your experience and how it relates to the job you are applying for

  • Summary: Highlight your work experience as it relates to the job you are applying for, with 5-7 points per experience

  • Technical Skills: List only the relevant skills to the job – this can include software, operating systems, and other technical skills. Be sure to not list too many – no one will read it.

  • Work Experience: Describe ONLY your past experience that directly relates to the job. Listing the previous 4-5 years of experience is sufficient. Be concise and precise.

  • Education: List all education, training and certificates as it relates to the job.

  • Cover Letter: Keep your cover letter short, simple and straight to the point. It should be one page. Always use five paragraphs: describe where you found the job positing, your profile, your experience, your personality, and closing remarks.



  • Understand that it is a game: The employer is just as anxious to find the right employee from a list of 100 or more resumes, so they are just as nervous as you are. RELAX.

  • Mirror the interviewer: People tend to like people like themselves, so be sure to mirror the interviewer. Have similar opinion about weather, movies, kids, travel etc.

  • Express self confidence in the way that you speak, especially when you speak about yourself.

  • Research: Research, research, research the company. Make sure you understand their values and mission statement.
